i MIDTOWN NEW YORK
By ROBERT SYLVESTER Yep, They'd Sell NEW YORK.—A publicist! named Henry Hillman, being a literary sort like all publicists,' has been making a study of best sellers and the advertising for same. Hillman quite sensibly has developed an advertising campaign for a lot of books which aren't ordinarily thought of as best sellers. He suggests! the following new title and the! following ad copy for books! which could do with some added popular appeal: New title: “Her Number Came Up." Ad copy: “Mysterious Ma-‘ dame X Played for High Stakes' until the Man with the Equation j in his Eye Solved Her Secret.” Former title: “Elementary Alge-j bra.” New title: “He Made Her Say: Yes.” Ad copy: “She Tried to 1 Hold Out. But his Argumentum ad Hominem Threw Her for a Loss.” Former title: “Principles! of* Logic ” New title: “She Knew What was Wrong." Ad copy: “Only a Wort Stood Between Her and a Lifetime of Regret. What Could She Say?” Former title: “Fow-! ler’s Modern English Usage.” New title: “Bon Jour Distress.” Ad copy: “Alone and Helpless. Faced by Nature in the Raw.” Former title: “Home Medical Encyclopedia.” Mr. Hillman stands ready to revise and exploit any unsung old favorite. ** * * A night with the phonograph: Celia Cruz, who knocked me out during a concert recently in Ha vana, has now been put on an LP disc' (Seeco) called “Celia Cruz Sings.” La Cruz sings 12 of her vital, native songs of which my favorites are the fia menco-ish “Plegaria a Loroye,” the bouncy “Munecas Cha Cha Cha,” the melodic "El Merengue"! and “Yerbero Moderno.” The! 10-plece rhythm behind her, surpasses | anything f w Ittmed before! * *6,000,000 motion picture..,two *> wi* AGNES MOOREHEAD* THOMAS GOME/ IQ#* HOYT*WILLIAM CONRAD• TEDdeCORSIA a DICK POWELL Production i/pj STARTS SATURDAY now in its 6th fabulous month 2 Peris.

There is evidence today that in at least one Washington area case the motivation was akin to that which drives expectant fathers out on a search for peach ice cream or dill pickles at 2 a.m. The group is the Garrett Play ers. Its historian describes the Garrett Players’ genesis thusly: "Back in September of 1952 five expectant mothers and one rather portly gentleman felt that ithe people In Garrett Park and Garrett Park Estates would be Interested In and support a little theater. Flyers were sent out, a director was selected and try outs for the first production were held. ... At that time the group had expanded to nine ex-| pectant mothers and a rather portly gentleman. ” It was the late Frederick M. Kerby, a man active in Wash ington little theater circles, who came along at that opportune moment. He brought in the necessary experience and turned the chaos into a community drama group. He became the Garrett Players’ first director 1 and guided them for the next : three years. i The group has had its share of misfortunes, as has every , other assemblage of amateur players. “Our jinx play,” the historian reports, “was ‘Bell, Book and Candle,’ wherein we used up three leading men and four leading cats. The cats got, sick, died or disappeared. The men just disappeared.” Despite such things the Gar rett Players continue in appar ent high spirits. Projects under | way right now Include that] Joint production of “Julius Cae sar” late in March, with the Gacrett Players Joining the Ken-! sington Players, the Rockville Little Theater and the Hamsters of the National Institutes of; !
